The Taste

Rappahannock News - - FRONT PAGE -

We are hours away from the 2017 Taste of Rap­pa­han­nock, which will be held Satur­day evening in the spa­cious Barn at The Inn at Mount Ver­non in Sper­ryville.

“Sold out and there’s a wait­ing list,” re­lays the Taste’s Kevin McCloskey.

As al­ways, tasty dishes from sev­eral of the county’s finest res­tau­rants and wine from Rap­pa­han­nock’s wonderful lo­cal vine­yards will com­ple­ment this year’s Taste.

In ad­di­tion, there are ex­cit­ing auc­tion items, silent and live. There will also be raf­fles with some fan­tas­tic prizes.

The mis­sion of Head­wa­ters is to foster ed­u­ca­tional ex­cel­lence in Rap­pa­han­nock County by cul­ti­vat­ing the co­op­er­a­tive spirit and re­sources of the whole

com­mu­nity to ben­e­fit all stu­dents. Head­wa­ters was founded in 1997 by a group of pub­lic school par­ents to pro­vide in­de­pen­dent sup­port for the pub­lic school sys­tem and to in­crease com­mu­nity in­volve­ment in ed­u­ca­tion.

Head­wa­ters’ pro­grams serve all of Rap­pa­han­nock chil­dren, aim­ing to reach those at great­est risk, with after-school en­rich­ment pro­grams, read­ing in­struc­tion, ed­u­ca­tional en­rich­ment grants, men­tor­ing, ca­reer and col­lege ac­cess, and farm-to-ta­ble to help keep stu­dents nour­ished and alert in the process.
